French Julia Chanourdie climbs 9b route Eagle-4

Julia Chanourdie is the first French woman and third woman in the world to climb a route with a level of difficulty 9b. Yesterday she succeeded in the red point ascent of Eagle-4 in the Praniania sector of the St. Léger area.

At the beginning of the year Julia Chanourdie with her commission of Super Crackinette (9a +) already burst a bomb. With the ascent at that time, she was only the fourth woman who could climb so difficult. Now she is setting the bar even higher and joins the even more exclusive club of 9b climbers.

Wow, today I climbed Eagle-4. My first 9b. Incredible!
